One of the reasons that I don’t call my witchy self elf “Wiccan” or any anything other than eclectic generic Pagan, is because I’m not a good rule follower. (You may have noticed.) Today’s daily draw is the perfect example.
But wait, let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. What I woke up with, in terms of our channeled message, needs to be addressed first. Because it feels as though it’s the next logical step after the past two.
mental and physical.
When we are well, in mind-body-spirit, then we are balanced. But if one of those is out of order (or, as we discussed yesterday, in need of Fixing) then they are all off.
The things that we have to do to keep ourselves healthy are not complicated. Even though the advertising industry and our overly-consumer-driven culture tries to tell us otherwise.
In fact, we’d probably be far better off if we purchased less and just walked around outside more. It’s not a puzzle why we sometimes feel yucky. Usually it’s a pretty easy and quick fix. As long as we’re paying attention.
What I was referring to earlier/above, is the new information that I’ve been gathering, which is a fascinating (and fun) way to tune-in. Starting with ourselves, then working out.
From the introduction of The Map (Finding The Magic And Inner Meaning In The Story Of Your Life) by Colette Baron-Reid, she’s explaining how we all have a map of our lives, and not just that blueprint we create with our Guides and Team before we get here, but a symbolic treasure chart:
“The Map becomes visible to you when you make a conscious choice to be awake, aware of something greater than yourself, and to embrace the possibility of a pattern created by (the) Spirit (world) that you can’t always make out from where you stand.”
As I was reading this afternoon, it became clear to me why I hadn’t made it in to the card altar room yet (I was literally hours behind schedule). Well, it was because we needed to take a look at this deck, right now, before I get any further in my studying.
Is that cheating? Nope. There are no rules to break in this case. We learn exactly when we’re supposed to. At this moment, we need to know and see and gain knowledge with the help of these tools.
“One-Ring Circus ~ 15 ~
You are capable and competent.
Independence is key now as you step into your journey today. Others may not have the vision or resources that you need.
Recognizing that all the wisdom you have acquired along the way makes you particularly competent, capable of moving forward with assurance. Self-reliance is important.
Another aspect to consider is creating and maintaining clear boundaries between you and another. Be discerning about your partnerships at this time.
When you know who we are, and have a healthy sense of where you end and others begin, you’re able to enter into the best kind of relationships and will attract people who mirror back your wholeness. Interdependent relationships are always mutually supportive, stimulating, and transformative.
You can achieve anything at this time.”
In the interest of full exposure, let’s also look at the Contrary angle of this one, even though it definitely came up Direct. It’s new, and we want to know it all!
If you think that the sun won’t rise without you, then it’s time to change. Perhaps you believe no one will be there to help you, or you expect that you have to do all the work, emotional or otherwise. This is a fear-based idea and only serves to alienate you from others by taking away their right to participate.
Receiving the One-Ring Circus card may indicate the misuse of power. Give it up, let go of the need to control how the wind blows, and let others play their part. You don’t need to be invincible, have all the answers, or be the savior. Things will get done if you step out of your own way.
Yet another meaning for this card suggests that someone else may be trying to control you. This needs to be addressed. Don’t be afraid to set a boundary – this is a wonderful step to interdependence.
Consider the example of two trees planted side by side sharing the sunlight equally, neither overshadowing the other.”
I’ll totally keep you posted as I get farther along, and as I learn more.
